how to use ECC6/S4Hana ME51N / ME21N catalog function

0 Kudos

Hi All,

understand that SRM7-mdm can provide the solution where user click the catalog button, it will send them to the srm-mdm for catalog selection from multi vendors for their materials and services.

however, we are not going to use srm-mdm solutions, so what's the other options available where user can choose the materials and services and have the info pass back to SAP with their material/service master data and the relevant contract maintained in sap?

is there any heavy customization like abap that needs to be done for this, i tried searching around and didn't found any answers, most recommend to use srm-mdm instead.

please help and thanks alot.

Have you read about Self Service Procurement for S/4 HANA? It will replace the ERP Shopping Cart functionality and you can conect several catalogs.

See the notes:

  • 2271168 - S4TWL - ERP Shopping Cart
  • 2214564 - Configuration guide for Self Service Procurement scenario in S4HANA

Self Service Procurement was launched for S/4 HANA on-premisse 1511.

seems like it doesn't help, i went through notes and found nothing useful. i need to create a customize and develop a catalog within s4 hana itself so that when user click the 'catalog' button, it will pop up the catalog for their selection of suppliers,materials,services,price,uom,qty and with relevant contract details(if available in me33k).

once the buyer has selected the items into the cart and click order/confirm, the data will be auto populated back into the ME51N screen.

for such requirements, i would need the below help(i presume?)

- a java expert to create the customize catalog into something that look like a e-comm website(ebay,amazon.etc)

- a abap expert to create a upload program to update the catalog details(supplier,materials,services,pricing..etc) into the java catalog..and also the interface between the java catalog how to populate the data from the catalog selected items in shopping cart back into ME51N.

is there anything else that i missed out above? i searched high and low around the forum and there's not much topics on this for, most are talking on using srm-mdm or other 3rd party applications. thank you very much.
